The elite club of American women to clean-and-jerk double bodyweight got a little larger at the first-ever American Open Series I meet this weekend in Reno, Nevada. 

Alyssa Ritchey became the sixth U.S. woman to achieve the mark in competition, helping vault her atop the women's 48kg division with a huge 26kg lead over second place. With the lift, Ritchey joined an exclusive group that includes Robin Goad, Morghan King, Tara Nott, Melanie Roach, and fellow American Open Series competitor Caitlin Hogan.

Hogan was the fifth American woman to hit a double bodyweight clean-and-jerk in November at the 2016 University World Championships, and she repeated the feat in Reno.


Hogan took silver overall in the 53kg division behind Cortney Batchelor, who set a new American record snatch at the same meet, due to the new tiebreaker rules set in place on January 1.

Under the previous rules, Hogan would have won due to a bodyweight advantage. The new rules removed that advantage, instead giving the tie to the athlete who achieved her total first.
